This is the latest work of Da Wu, an original picture book’s author-illustrator in China. The scarecrow must leave because the wheat field where he works in the story is no longer planted. He met with many people and every experience along the way serves as an opportunity to inspire it to grow in its abilities. Until the cold winter arrives and destroys everything. However, no one ever forgets the scarecrow…

It’s a simple, inclusive, and lovely story, with powerful illustrations.

推薦語

我非常喜歡大吳的《稻草人流浪記》,感覺這個寓言故事就像許多好創意那樣,彷彿已經存在了很久,只等著有人耐心地寫和畫出來。我喜歡看他的插圖,尤其是本書跨頁圖裡廣闊的光和影,以及簡潔的文圖關係(這是一本好繪本的精髓)。我相信它會跨越許多不同的文化。這本書蘊含了當前的時代精神,同時也傳遞出永恆的哲思。尋找真正的自我,這是我們都在努力實現的目標。
——凱特·格林納威大獎和奧斯卡最佳動畫短片獎獲得者、澳大利亞華裔畫家 陳志勇

稻草人工作的麥田不再種植了,所以它必須離開。旅途中的每一次經歷,都是激發它發揮自己所長的機會。直到寒冷的冬天到來,奪走這一切。但沒人會忘記它……這是一個簡單、包容、美麗的故事,插圖承載著巨大的表現力。
